clue

手 te hand
掛 ga(kari) hang, catch [the ka becomes a ga when placed after te]

The missing fingerprints was the biggest clue.

SUGGESTED USAGE:

(まった)手掛(てが)かりがなかったので、透明人間(とうめいにんげん)逮捕(たいほ)された。

mattaku tegakari ga nakatta node, toumei ningen ga taiho sareta.
The total lack of clues led to the arrest of the Invisible Man.

  • 全く mattaku - totally; entirely
  • なかった nakatta - nothing; not
  • ので node - because
  • 透明人間 toumei ningen - the Invisible Man
  • 逮捕 tai ho - arrest
  • された sareta - passive verb [was arrested]
